Dell 把 IT 服務產品線賣給 NTT Data

讓人頗意想不到的新聞,NTT Data 買下 Dell 的 IT 服務產品線:「Dell to sell Perot Systems unit to NTT Data at loss of $800 million」。

大家的解讀都是跟 EMC 併購案有關:

Dell, which went private in 2013, is trying to raise money as it prepares to complete a $67 billion acquisition of EMC.

NTT Data 會去買則是為了擴展海外業務,NTT Data 官方的新聞稿在這:「NTT DATA to Acquire Dell Services, Accelerating the Company's Position as a Leading Global IT Services Partner」。

Dell 買下 EMC

前幾天提到的「傳言 Dell 要買 EMC...」發生了,歷史上最大的科技產業併購案,Dell 買下 EMC:「IT'S OFFICIAL: Dell just bought EMC in the biggest tech merger ever」。

估算約 670 億美金的併購案:

Assuming, for illustrative purposes, a valuation for each share of tracking stock of $81.78, the intraday volume-weighted average price for VMware on Wednesday, October 7, 2015, EMC shareholders would receive a total combined consideration of $33.15 per EMC share and the total transaction would be valued at approximately $67 billion.

OWASP 取消與 RSA Conference 的合作...

RSA Security 收了 NSA 的錢,並且使用 NSA 所偏好的亂數演算法的事情被爆料出來後 (而且這個演算法已經被認為是 NSA 埋後門的演算法),一直有要求 RSA Security 解釋的聲音。但 RSA Security 卻完全沒有解釋。

想當然的,陸陸續續開始有人退出今年的 RSA Conference。一開始是 F-Secure 的 CRO (Chief Research Officer) 宣布退出:「An Open Letter to the Chiefs of EMC and RSA」,後來也有不少資安領域的專家退出 (可以參考 iThome 的文章):「資安專家群起抵制RSA安全會議」。

最新的消息是 OWASP 官方決定取消與 RSA Conference 的合作關係:「OWASP terminates marketing agreement with RSA Conference. Board member cancels class out of protest.」,不過 OWASP 正式的公告還沒出來。

OWASP 在 Web 安全性這個領域可是赫赫有名... 這下今年二月底的 RSA Conference 還會有多少人「跟進」呢... 會不會停辦?
